Geophysics with Study Abroad

In geophysics you learn about the history, structure and dynamics of the earth system and the physics that underpins these elements. You will learn how the inaccessible parts of the earth are studied using remote sensing techniques, such as seismology and geodesy, as well as through studying rocks and minerals in the field and laboratory. In years one and two you will gain a firm grounding in both earth sciences and physics, building your knowledge to make informed unit choices during your third year. Year three will be spent abroad and you will take courses similar to those available in Bristol, taught in English. The fourth year is structured differently, with advanced taught units in the autumn term and a major research project in the second half of the year. Often, these research projects are published in scientific literature. The MSci degree is equally valuable to those wishing to pursue an academic career and to those seeking employment in industry.
